France Vs Nigeria: Super Falcons Coach Snubs Oshoala
Super Falcons star Asisat Oshoala has been omitted from the list of 17 players invited for the France-Nigeria friendly coming up next week.
It is not clear why the three-time Africa Women Footballer of the Year was snubbed by Coach Thomas Dennerby for the high-profile friendly.
Nigeria’s 17 –woman list includes Rita Chikwelu, who captained the team to win an eighth continental title in Cameroon in December 2016, as well as big forward Desire Oparanozie, the effervescent Francisca Ordega, nimble –footed midfielder Ngozi Okobi and home –based goalkeepers Onyinyechukwu Okeke and Chiamaka Nnadozie.
U.S –based forward Courtney Dike and Ordega would be first arrivals in Le Mans on Tuesday, 3rd April – the same day the delegation from Nigeria will depart from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. The Super Falcons will lodge at the Mercure Le Mans Centre.
